"Darren Collison, I'm told, is going to the Clippers. Done deal. Two-year deal, player option in Year 2"

"With no sign-and-trade workable between Mavs and Clips, Collison opting to take portion of Clippers' MLE for chance to go back to LA area"

Per Stein's twitter

Yes, we have a great backup PG now! He'll probably be one of the greatest backups in the league!

Great move, and another thing worth noting is Collison must really want to win. He is a 25 year old who took a paycut to become a backup of the best point guard in the league. I really respect him for that.

For the third straight year we will have a new and very good backup point guard, first Mo, than Bled, now Collison. I could get used to this.

I don't.....I don't understand what we're doing. Acquiring a bunch of guards but no bigs didn't work out for the celtics last year, how is it supposed to work for us? Better hope K-Mart or Brand are willing to come for the veteran minimum. We're screwed if we bring back Hollins/Turiaf.

I like this move. He'll be great in the back up role, now we just need to shore up the the front court.

Come on, Clippers. We get it. Other teams need players too. Take it easy.

I'm not used to hearing this.

Great move by FO (cp3) putting this team together so far. Now cp3 needs to contact some of his taller friends.

Love this pickup, Darren plays great D and he is fast. His shot is not that good but better than EB. Dude is super fast off picks and open court.

Damn our FO have been working incognito. Something tells me they learned a lesson from the Doc Rivers trade.

Good signing! Very good value for a guy who averaged double figure scoring ever since coming to the NBA, although he had been playing starter minutes.

I see where you're coming from. We could easily re-sign LO, Hollins, and Turiaf for the vet min and call it an offseason. Granted, we'd already be a better team than last year, but I don't think we do that. The FO (including Doc and probably CP3) have too much clout to settle completely.

I think we get surprised by a quality backup big coming in for the vet min.

The poll question is misleading, it's not that I don't like Collison, he's a fantastic pickup. I just feel like frontcourt depth is a bigger priority than a backup PG who's probably only going to see about 10 minutes per game.

Even if we do get Brand or Odom for the minimum, having too many good players at one position can potentially cause problems. Someone might ask for a trade.

Nice Matt! Team player!

Makes sense as both players played their college ball at UCLA.

We don't have a backup PG besides Wayns though... fvck Billups!

If it's true Matt agreed to cut his pay, he enters my list as a favorite Clipper.

This is great news! We do need to worry about backup bigs, but I have faith in our FO.

Barnes took like a 400k-500k paycut a year for this to happen.

Huge value. He's a better player than Bled. Just upgraded another slot.

So I guess they think Lamar is going to be a big contributor. We're set 1-3 and have nothing behind the bigs. Lamar, Hollins +...Zaza would be awesome but Oneal would be great too.
